Hi guys, was look to see if anyone knows if a Schneider 10mm f1.8 is usable on a H16 reflex. Looking for a 10mm to use on my Bolex and Milliken. 

Thanks

Hi Cody,
 
I do not have a definitive answer but should you be fine with the Schneider. It will be softer at large apertures (f1.8. 2.8, etc.) but should be fine at f5.6 and up. I suspect the image circle was designed to cover old school 1 inch "sensors" so it should provide good cover your Bolex 16mm camera. Which specific Bolex do you have?
 
Here is a film I shot on my reflex Bolex UltraPan8 3.1 with a Carl Zeiss Jena Tevidon APO 10mm f2.0 C-mount lens with Bolex Bayonet adapter. This lens was originally meant to cover up to 1 inch CCTV cameras. Note that my C-Mount lens mount was not optimized for the extra wide gate of my camera and technically needed to be offset similar to a Super 16mm lens mount conversion.
 
 
Cheers!

Thanks for the Input, I have a Rex 3 H16.

Your test footage looked great.

 

Thanks Cody
